It is high time to summarize the 2nd half of 2019. As before, during past months our experts have taken part in lots of interesting events, inspiring conferences and thought-provoking discussions. Let us take a closer look at the details.


First of all, in July we were impatiently waiting for Mobile Office Week- our annual event for Adaptive employees exclusively. Week by week next details concerning agenda were revealed and we felt, it is going to be a real thing!

Besides, again we had our Adaptive breakfast and spent some time together.

Last but not least, our CFO Michał Bielawski took part in ABSL Chapter Meeting.



When it comes to August, of course we were focused on our Mobile Office Week.The event combined three ingredients: knowledge, inspiration and fun. We enjoyed good weather, discussed what we have learnt and involved in water sports.
